Wood Sunglasses 

Written By: Jeremy Kerfs 


I began tinkering with wooden sunglasses after several frustrations with fixing cheap plastic 
pairs. This guide will help you transform nearly any pair of sunglasses into wooden eye-wear 
with a little over an hour of work. 

Step 1 — Wood Sunglasses 

• Eventually I will provide some 
detailed steps on cutting the 
frames from wood as well as 
creating the original stencil. 
However, this step shows the 
frames being soaked in water prior 
to bending.

Step 2 

• It just so happens that many pots 
used in the kitchen are the perfect 
size for bending sunglasses 
because the pots are slightly larger 
than a human head. The clamps 
must be kept in place for a day 
before removing. 

Step 3 

• The finished glasses with the arms attached and the lenses sandwiched between the 
pieces of the frame. 

A bit of wood working experience is useful, but not necessary.
